The Camoes Garden and Grotto is a very welcome green oasis in this busy city. There are paths for strolling and viewpoints across the river and the city, as well as quiet corners to sit in. the main monuments are to Camoes and to the Korean martyr St. Andrew Kim Taegeon.

This area is actually well-guarded from the noise of the city. There are a lot of plants, people doing tai chi EVERYWHERE, and the statues and grottos. Good for a break.

Beautiful garden with large portuguese mosaic murals. The mosaic murals are very cool. It also has a little library. The park is quite large, you can see some people practising tai chi. And of course, the famous portuguese poet, camoes statue. If you are tired of casinos and wanna breath some fresh air, here is a good place to go.

This was a great little place to escape the burning sun and take a peek at life in Macau away from the casinos and shops. Men sitting around playing cards, kids being kids, women doing their exercises. I loved it.

The garden itself is rather average but I liked its waterfall (try to pass in its small grotto between the streams without getting wet :-)) and a beautiful Macau view from above. Also, there is a small but beautiful temple near the rear entrance to the garden. Overall, a very nice visit.

This small urban park is on the northern border of the Historic Center(re) of Macau. It is fairly small and not very impressive as an urban park, but it's clean and well-kept. This is the very seam line of the colonial city, and it's cool to see the contrast between the two Macaus. It won't take much of your time... More

Grotto is a strong word. It is a nice stroll through small gardens on undulating land but this is not really worth making a big trek to find. Some nice views from the top but it is really over the top as a venue. Easy walk from st Paul's. It was a little Romantic for us but I was expecting... More

Our hope to find a lush garden with lovely grottos was totally shattered when we entered this neglected garden. It was dirty, or rather - filthy, with flies and other bugs all over the place. The only nice thing about this place was the gathering of old local men, who played unique card and board games.

In addition to lush, forested park area which makes up Camoes Garden and Grotto, we have been pleased with the renovated square in front of the garden entrance as well as the restored temple structures on the western slope of the garden hill, facing the city. The square has more seating area now as well as a nice fountain, with... More
